Effort Level is the number next to the status, and the higher the effort level, the higher your base stats will increase. Effort Values (EVs) and Individual Values (IVs) from the previous titles are no longer present in this game. Instead, Effort Levels were introduced as a new system.

Alpha Pokemon's Initial Effort Level Is High.

Alpha Pokemon usually has a higher level of initial effort level than normal Pokemon. However, there is no difference in status from normal Pokemon, only the initial effort level is high.

Since Effort Levels are randomly generated when captured, it is practically possible to farm for them. However, you will be able to increase Effort Levels using specific items in the game.
